For October Break this year, we took the 4 oldest to Seattle, where I tried to work in a little photoshoot with my favorite senior and take advantage of some real fall scenery.
How this girl is about to turn 18 and leave my nest I'll never know.
Doesn't it go by in a blink?

In response to questions about what camera, etc. I use......
I'm a Nikon girl. It's what I've always used & I'm too invested to change, even if I wanted to. I shoot with a Nikon D700. My favorite lens would have to be my Nikkor 70-200 2.8G, but obviously can't be used in every situation. Same with my Nikkor 85 1.4. Such beautiful lenses, but when I need something wider I have to use the Nikkor 24-70 2.8G. The 24-70 has a great, practical range, but I don't love it. It's not as pretty. I also have a super-wide, a Nikkor 16-35 4G, which can really come in handy & is fun to play with. And then a 50 1.4G, which I use quite a bit, usually for indoor & low-light stuff.
I never use an on-camera flash. But I do use strobes in my garage/studio. I have 2 Profoto & 1 Elinchrom strobes & use a big (5 ft?) Octabox, among other light modifiers. My backdrops are usually seamless paper rolls.
And for post-processing, I use Lightroom & CS5 & a random assortment of actions. I still have so much to learn!!!
And of course I can't do a post without a picture.....
Caroline couldn't decide which hair accessory to wear today.
This has been a daily activity as of late.
I've got me a girly-girl and I'm loving it!
